Achilles tendon weakens as a result of age-related degeneration, repetitive activities or overtraining without allowing sufficient rest and recovery, or a sudden and significant increase in physical activity or intensity, especially without proper conditioning. It's important to note that multiple factors can interact and contribute to Achilles tendon weakness. 

The Achilles tendon is a piece of fibroid tissue that attaches your heel to the calf muscle. If this tendon gets ruptured/torn, you could instantly lose your ability to walk or bend your leg

The healing process for an Achilles tendon rupture after surgery can be challenging and typically requires a significant amount of time and rehabilitation. However, with appropriate treatment and adherence to the rehabilitation plan, most individuals can achieve a successful recovery.

It takes 4-6 months to completely recover from Achilles tendon rupture surgery. You will be assigned a physical therapist who can help rebuild mobility in your calf muscles and repaired tendon. 

An Achilles tendon repair surgery takes anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and is carried out on an outpatient basis. This means you can return home the same day. All you can expect after surgery is that a cast will be placed over the back of your leg extending to your toes. This will ensure that your foot is positioned rightly.
